"My Blackberry powered off when I was taking pictures. Then, I changed a battery and turned on the phone and wanted to continue to take pictures. Here comes the problem. When I turned on the phone, it says that I need to format the memory card before I can use it. I don’t know why it asks me to format the micro SD card, but what I know is that I cannot format it.
